The Inn at Water's Edge

A charming in near Killington

With the children grown, New Yorkers Tina and Bruce Verdrager renovated their rambling Victorian vacation home on the edge of Echo Lake into a country inn. Bruce's natural enthusiasm and Tina's culinary skills made it an instant success. Arriving guests are welcomed with a drink in the English pub, which is dominated by an authentic 100-year-old English bar of etched and leaded glass set in mahogany. Bruce tells of how he found it in Savannah, Ga., of all places, while he minds the bar.

Capella

Capella

A newcomer to Telluride’s Mountain Village, Capella opened at the end of last season. It’s the first U.S. hotel in the luxury chain’s portfolio. Attentive service, including a personal assistant stationed in the Capella Living Room lounge, maintains an intimate feel despite the lodge’s 100 guestrooms and 60 condos. Rooms are generous, with extra storage and large bathrooms with soaking tubs. Evenings, guests hit the Suede Bar for cocktails then head to Onyx for sophisticated mountain-inspired fare or out the door to the gondola and down to Telluride’s downtown. The heated pool, hot tub and fireplace lounge are equally satisfying ways to end a day.

$295–$3,800

The Annabelle Inn - Aspen, Colorado

The Annabelle Inn - Aspen, Colorado
Annabelle
This Aspen bed and breakfast will have you right at home.

The Annabelle can be summed up in one word: darling. The rooms are quaint and, in classic B&B style, each has a different décor and feel. (On the downside of darling, however, they are small, and bathrooms are cramped.) A breakfast buffet is served downstairs in the cozy lobby each morning, where the friendly proprietors make themselves available for advice on everything from restaurants to snow conditions.

The Aspen Square Lodge: Stay in the Heart of Aspen

The Aspen Square Lodge: Stay in the Heart of Aspen
Aspen Square Lodge
Wood-burning fireplaces in each of the single bedroom condo-style rooms and other amenities make the Aspen Square a great place to stay.

The Aspen Square Lodge is smack in the center of town, which is its single greatest attribute. It’s steps from the gondola, steps to every restaurant and bar in town, and steps from the grocery store, which comes in handy when you’re stocking your unit’s newly renovated kitchen.

Which brings us to the second greatest attribute: It offers the only single-bedroom condo-style units in town. Other perks include an outdoor pool and hot tub, and a wood-burning fireplace in each unit. When booking, secure a renovated unit.

Viceroy Snowmass

Viceroy Snowmass
Viceroy Snowmass bedroom
Snowmass Village, Colo.

The first Viceroy to grace the base of a ski resort, the 173-room lodge opened in November to high expectations. After all, the Viceroy name conjures images of such glam spots as Palm Springs and Anguilla. But this hotel, which is currently in the process of applying for Silver LEED certification, embraces such green practices as offering free and discounted parking for low emission, hybrid and electric cars; a saline pool instead of chlorine; and stainless steel water bottles at check-in, eschewing plastic bottles throughout the hotel.

Aava Whistler

Aava Whistler
Aava Whistler
Whistler's newest remodel.

Whistler’s newest remodel—formerly the Coast Whistler—unveils in time for the Games, with a village location that’s five minutes by foot from the gondola. Décor is best described as mountain-modern (lots of creams and whites, clean lines and a 20-foot-tall cylindrical lobby fireplace), and the 185-room hotel has a heated outdoor pool and hot tub, flatscreen HDTVs, fitness room and free wireless internet. The onsite restaurant, casual chain White Spot, specializes in burgers and comfort food, but there are plenty of more refined options throughout the village.

Silver Star Lodge

Silver Star Lodge

New this ski season, Silver Star is a micro-village of condos, townhomes and cottages at the base of the Silver Star lift, on the site of the former Silver King and Spiro mines. (Several portions of the original buildings were melded into the design.) Accommodations range from two-bedroom suites to five-bedroom cottages, and all have gourmet kitchens, gas fireplaces and soaking tubs. In the adjacent village, Silver Star Market & Café sells breakfast and lunch items, as well as gourmet snacks and groceries. A lift ticket kiosk and rental shop answer the call for convenience.

Osprey at Beaver Creek

Osprey at Beaver Creek

Formerly the Inn at Beaver Creek, the property was reborn as the Osprey in late 2008—a $7 million renovation that touched every corner of the hotel. Gone are the wallpaper and upholstered couches in the lobby, replaced by leather seating, birch lamps and native stone. The 47 updated rooms and suites have flatscreen TVs, MP3 docking stations and fireplaces. Property-wide amenities include a ski valet, a small fitness center, and an outdoor pool and hot tub with a firepit. A lobby restaurant serves a tapas-style menu offering bites of the freshest local ingredients. And for those skiing bell to bell, the convenience factor is high: The Strawberry Park quad is right out the back door. $270–$834; ospreyatbeavercreek.com
